The 60s: The Beatles Decade

When people are asked to think about the 1960s, they automatically think love, peace and...The Beatles.

Over the decade, the Fab Four changed from cheeky pop mop-heads to blissed-out experimentalists, and this transformation mirrored the country as a whole.

This five-part documentary series looks at how the world's most famous pop group personified one of the most explosive and volatile decades of the 20th century. Although the 60s generation had it all, a changing political landscape and changing attitudes to sex and relationships were dragging Britain into a new age.

By the end of the decade, The Beatles had split up, proving that the band's personalities and their music had become true symbols of an iconic decade.
